So, I’ve been blogging now for just over a year. And suddenly I start getting all kinds of spam comments. I set all my comment settings to moderated and started the process of deleting such comments one by one, without first logging a few details…ip address, acct name, e-mail and timestamp and a couple of the URLs spammed. What made this process easier…is that all the comments came from by only two IP Addresses…
NetRange: 18.104.22.168 – 22.214.171.124
OrgName: ThePlanet.com Internet Services, Inc.
Address: 315 Capitol
Address: Suite 205
NetRange: 126.96.36.199 – 188.8.131.52
OrgName: GoDaddy.com, Inc.
Address: 14455 N Hayden Road
Address: Suite 226
184.108.40.206 was particularly interested in spamming about drivers and laptops where 220.127.116.11 was all about fendi purses and dior handbags
74.52 used much better e-mail addresses that mimic what a real user whould have picked from multiple vendors [gmail, hotmail, yahoo] whereas 208.109 used *only* numerical addresses and *only* from Yahoo.
Not really sure if its worth switching blog providers over…but im already liking WordPress better anyway 😛
